Mohadi’s phone calls to these married women have been trending on social media, but the ‘shameless’ VP said his voice had been ‘cloned’ before saying his right to privacy had been violated.
“Greetings to you, citizens of this great nation. I begin by thanking the President of the Republic of Zimbabwe, Cde E.D. Mnangangwa for expressing my profound gratitude for entrusting me with the enormous responsibility of representing him under the new dispensation.
“Dear Zimbabweans, Following the recent hype around my allegedly illegal relationship with two married women, I have decided to open up and address the allegations of my critics.
“Despite growing impatience in the era of defamation, I would like to state categorically that the allegations against me are not merely false, but a well-choreographed humiliation, condescension and taint of my image as a national leader and patriot,” he said.
Mohadi claims breach of privacy
The under fire Zimbabwe vice president lashed out his perceived enemies for breaching his constitutional rights which states that he is entitled to privacy.
“I am aware that my right to privacy has been destroyed under Section 57(d) of the Constitution of Zimbabwe Amendment Act 2013 (No. 20) which reads: ‘Any person has the right to privacy, including the right that the confidentiality of his communications will not be breached…”
“Despite the noise in the digital media ecology, I want to make it clear that I am innocent and a victim of political machinations peddled through hacking and voice cloning.
“Dear Zimbabweans, despite the depth of the allegations against me, I salute the support of fellow citizens, colleagues and comrades who fully understood the rigid complexities of the orchestrated enemy attacks. In this context, I categorically distance myself from the so-called immoral trade unions.
“The camaraderie and support I received during this difficult hour is greatly appreciated. That these faceless netizens have blended well-connected digital architecture to reimagine spaces of political demonization will not cloud my mind as a seasoned executive.
“I remain a dedicated leader, father, cadre and servant to this great nation. Thank you. Sincerely, Kembo C.D. Mohadi,” the statement read.
